Soldiers who displayed signs of physical distress as a result of the stress of combat were not always treated kindly. Many were tried and executed for desertion. In 2006, a blanket posthumous pardon was issued for British soldiers who were shot at dawn for cowardice or desertion.
How have our views on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder changed since then? Is there still a stigma attached to warriors who suffer from the syndrome? Does society handle such cases appropriately?
